The Immigration History Research Center and Archives share a mission to promote interdisciplinary research on migration, race, and ethnicity in the U.S. and the world; develop archives documenting immigrant and refugee experiences, especially in the U.S.; and support public programming and outreach efforts that connect U.S. immigration history research to contemporary issues and communities.
Currently on display in the first floor gallery at the Elmer L. Andersen Library: "Juhla: Celebrating 150 years of Finnish immigration to Minnesota." The exhibit features items from the rich Finnish American holdings of the IHRC Archives. Open through the end of January 2015. More information.
Finding aids are online guides to the collections in the IHRC Archives.
Search thousands of photographs, illustrations, texts, and other archival materials selected from the IHRCA's collections using the UMedia Archive.
